Apologize. Explain.

By the time you get to be an old geezer like me, you figure out what really matters in life. People. Family. Relationships.

(If you still think money & power are what it’s all about, you haven’t been paying attention. Get with the program, already!!)

Conversation is (in my opinion, humble or otherwise) the whole darn karmic enchilada.

If you don’t talk to people, how can they understand you? How can you understand them? How can we possibly make all these so-important relationships work??

TALK, people.

Apologize. Explain.


(most of us are not mind-readers, you know??)
